President Trump on Monday, he showed donated a quarter of his $ 400,000 salary to the Department of Homeland Security.

“While the press does not like to write about it, nor do I need you, I donate my annual presidential salary of $400.000.00 clock at various points throughout the year, this to Homeland Security,” Trump tweeted. “If I don’t do it, it would be hell to pay from the false MEDIA!”

Trump posted a photo of a test of 12. March the order of the Department of Homeland Security will be paid out. It was signed by Trump, whose address was listed as the Trump Tower on New York’s Fifth Avenue.

It was not immediately clear to what quarter of the salary, but the White house in January, said Trump has his salary from the third quarter of 2018, the National Institute on alcohol abuse and alcoholism.

While a candidate for the presidency in 2016, Trump promised not to accept the $400,000 annual presidential salary that must be paid according to the law.


So Trump has donated, the quarterly payments to various Federal ministries and agencies — including the departments of education, health and Human services, transportation, and Veterans Affairs, among others.

Homeland Security consists of several different agencies or organizations, with a focus on securing the United States and its citizens. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the Coast Guard, the secret service, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), are among those under the Department umbrella.
